A stunning montage of Carla Coulson's coastal staircase photographs seen in My Amalfi Coast.
Carla's second book Paris Tango (writing and photography) has a release date here in North America of June 25th (but can be pre-ordered at Amazon.ca or Amazon.com ). The Paris-based writer and photographer aimed her lens directly into the heat of contempory Paris, the vibrant Marais neighborhood where she now resides, and behind the steamy stage at the Moulin Rouge. She interviews some of the high-design names in Paris, couture genius Francois Lesage, renowned florist Djordje Varda, lingerie high-priestess Chantal Thomass and architect Renzo Piano. Local and neighborly flavour comes from her salsa teacher, landlady and boulanger.
Fantastic image from her blog Carla Loves Photography
Last week, Carla's blog gave us a sneak peek of an upcoming magazine spread she just finished. Built in 1656, La Pergola became the stunning Florence location for a magazine spread Carla shot using naturally-filtered light.
Gorgeous talent don't you think!
